Bagging It!

Mount Nuang is one of the highest peaks in Selangor and it is very popular because it is very close to Kuala Lumpur. It can be hiked in one long day via the Kuala Pangsoon trail from Hulu Langat, with most hikers requiring about 9-10 hours in total (5 hours up and 4 hours down).

The trail is as follows: Pangsoon (200m) – Camp Lolo (580m) – Camp Pacat (1,060m) – Camp Pengasih (1,430m) – Nuang summit. It is about 5km along a track from the trailhead to Camp Lolo, after which the real ascent begins. There is a metal trig point at the summit and excellent views in clear weather.

Another, less well-used, route starts in Janda Baik and is apparently easier, requiring only 4 hours up and 3 hours back down.
